I must say that I have never had a bad food experience in Belgium. They really have a fantastic cuisine. I liked Toucan sur Mer because is a small cozy restaurant with fine seafood, excellent wines, mainly the whites and the ambiance is great.

Sad that this place doesn't make a bigger effort to be friendly with their guests. There was a blond lady extremely arrogant from when we walked in the door. However, the food and the wine was very nice.More
